* FreezeFrameBonus: In the SpinningPaper scenes of the remastered version, before the paper reaches full size, the headline reads "I Shoulda Turned Left at Albuquerque". This is very hard to catch, since the paper moves quickly and the text is blurry.

* CuttingOffTheBranches: Canonically, Bernard was in the rescue trio in ''Maniac Mansion''. The optional hamster-microwaving event is also canon, as is Green Tentacle's recording contract, making the third kid either Syd or Razor.
